Quarantined in Bologna, performance artist Jakob Lohmann began the initiative Artists in Quarantine to showcase artists and tell their stories. Due to travel restrictions, precautionary measures, as well as general hysteria caused by virus COVID-19, many artists are losing work opportunities and foundational income. Galleries, theaters, even public places are being closed off. Artists in Quarantine wants to show humans during this crisis and our ways of dealing with the uncertainty of the situation while at the same time moving forward. Next to shedding light upon each individual and different projects that have arisen from these circumstances, Jakob wants to create a community of artists that can help each other through this current crisis. https://www.jlohmann.com/

Anna Ehrenstein

works in transdisciplinary artistic practice with a focus on research and mediation. She uses lens based media, installation, social moments, sculpture, print or writing to reflect the intersections and divergences of so-called 'high' and 'low cultures' and their socio-economic and political constitutions. Raised between Albania and Germany reflections on migration-related visual and material culture, the social life of things, networked images and diasporic narratives form main foci of her work. She studied photography, media arts and curatorial studies and see’s her work as an art educator as part of her artistic and activist practice. She works with a variety of groups together on collaborative artistic projects, e.g. amongst others for the 10th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, within District Berlin as part of the intersectional, feminist collective N*A*I*L*S or the Critical Academy in Dublin.

Ihr Ziel ist es, die Hochschule zu politisieren und die Klimakrise in gestalterische Praxis zu übersetzen. Im Sommersemester 2020 war das Thema Thinking Degrowth: Reshaping environmental attitudes. Die Studierenden beschrieben ihre wachstumsorientierte Wirklichkeit und verschränkten diese mit wachstumskritischen Alternativen. Es galt, eigene Werte zu hinterfragen und gestalterisch mit neuen Positionen zu experimentieren. Die Teilnehmenden kamen aus verschiedenen Studienrichtungen, wie Visuelle Kommunikation, Architektur und Produktdesign.
Konzipiert und geleitet wurde das Seminar von dem Künstlerischen Mitarbeiter Pascal Kress und Studierenden der Klasse Klima.
